The Ocean by raun The Ocean by raun
"The Ocean doesnt want me today
But I'll be back tomorrow to play" -Tom Waits

Heard these words a decade ago. I think its on Tom Waits 'Bone Machine' album. Maybe its just me, but I think that sentence contains an incredible mix of feelings. Suicidal determination, defiance, strength, cynicism, humor even.. I think of these words often..

10 sec exposure, 12-24mm nikkor, nikon d70. Levels and coloradjustments in photoshop.

well, this is a new thing! it would've seemed better a little zoomed to reduce a bit of all the water but.. anyway, i'm far from dissapointed
..but still.. who am i to judge?

breathtaking...the figure, the deep tones...it's calming, but unsettling and I have no idea how it could be both things at the same time. :)

I like the cool colors, such a contrast to your usual golden tones. Is that a person on the strip, or is it a tree? Anyways, the light is great. An overall nice job.

I like the fact that it's not heavy texturized, and really something diffirent from your other work. And i love the fuzzy long exposure feeling of it :)

that's a good way to see the ocean. when you how it, without that felling of holiday, or something nice and beautiful.
the way i see it here, it's the vision i have of, it, that's something mysterious, and it demands respect, for all the things it represents.
great great shot!!
(sory my english)
